View Full Version : Help needed for 2 Hellsing costumes.

I'm trying to make both Anderson and Victoria costumes for a con in April. Most of the Anderson one will be easy, since I already have a trench pattern picked out, and can get the rest either in the thrift shop of the hardware store. ^_^ My problem for him is the hair. I haven't been able to find a wig that even comes close to his hair, and I'm leery about buying a wig to cut and spike. Can anyone point me to a good wig, or have tips for adjusting one? I have waist-length hair that I'm not cutting, so it has to be a wig. LOL

The big problem is Seras' uniform. I have looked through the catalogs of the major pattern makers and come up empty. Can anyone offer some advice for putting her uniform together? I already know I'll have to buy a bra and stuff LOL. I can adjust patterns to account for the *ahem* assets, but I can't make one from scratch, and I haven't found any shirts that come close to her top.

Me :lost:


OK, not 15 minutes after posting this, I found 3 Simplicity patterns that might work for the skirt. :sulk: So, weather permitting, I'll be checking them out this weekend at the craft store. Hopefully I'll find a shirt pattern before I go up, so I can get all the stuff I need for her in one trip.

There are shirt patterns that you could use for Victoria. I made my own pattern for her outfit, so I do not have any names or numbers that would be good.

Thanks! My husband has pointed out a uniform supply place where I might be able to get the shirt. I'll just have to get it big and dart it under the chest LOL. :thumbsup:

Still looking for Anderson's wig. If the shirt thing works out, that'll be my only piece.
